Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY!!
East Beach got Nest #2 this morning! This nest was found by 2nd year vols, Beth & Butch. Great Job! […clip…] We sent out the Call-Em-All & eagerly watched the arrival of the “Sea of Green”. Thanks so much for your help: Steve, Linda Sc, Sherry & Donnie, Lewis & Debbie D, Gwen & Larry, Butch & Beth, Sid, Alan & Karen W, Paula, Laura, Liz, Paul, Don, Karen M and Shelley. Mama Turtle had a crawl width of 39 inches. Congrats to Lewis for finding the eggs! Congrats to Steve for winning “Guess Number of Eggs”. This is EB Largest Nest ever- “161” eggs!! Out of these wonderful healthy eggs there were “3” that were twice the size of the rest. Hmm- Green or Leatherback Daddy?? Special THANKS to Shelley & Linda Sc for the Great pics (see below).
Butch & Beth also had a False Crawl this morning. Her crawl width was 29″. This Mama Turtle only came onshore a short distance & then went right back out. Hopefully she will return tonight.
We truly appreciate your enthusiasm & dedication to the EB Team! Continue to patrol Carefully. Keep your eyes on the sand & walk ABOVE the wrack line.
See ya on the beach,
